The U.S. got an emphatic win over Germany on Thursday, while Canada took a measure of revenge against Finland. The wins put the two women's hockey powerhouses in the final at the Women's World Championships with a gold medal on the line.
Finland further proved its mettle on Monday in going toe-to-toe with the U.S., which finished the opening stage a perfect 3–0. Canada was able to earn itself a bye into the semifinals with a pasting of Russia.
In his new role as the head coach of the U.S. women's national team, Robb Stauber is helping his players see the whole ice, something they've done successfully so far at the 2017 Women's World Championships.
